Do we want to add a vacancy for fighting vandalism?

Do we want to post a list of the open phabricator tickets?

Call for volunteers for SRE roles[edit source]

If you are interested in volunteering for Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) roles to help Miraheze stay afloat, please comment here with your potential qualifications, potential roles you'd be interested in, and other helpful information about yourself and why you think you could help Miraheze in these roles.

MediaWiki EM is what I am interested in, I am a former Miraheze SRE member (MW-admin and puppet-user) I mainly focused on SSL/DNS, Jobrunner issues, and other tasks as needed. I have been apart of the project for 6 years. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 03:00, 16 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I’d be happy to do some SWE work (as it’d be what I’m most qualified for - could try out SRE if it’s more urgently needed). I’m a student of Computer Science at Oxford University, with 1yoe experience in a frontend web dev role and now transitioning into a prod eng role at a large HFT/quant firm (So maybe in a couple months I’ll be better suited to the SRE role).

I'm interested in helping with the Security Engineering. I work full time as a Senior Cyber Security Consultant with normal responsibilities including Vulnerability Management, Incident Response, Security Architecture, and many other things. I hold a valid Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification and I'm in good standing in the industry.
I'm already committed to two other volunteer projects (FIRST Robotics), and running IT System for a local fundraiser. I've got limited time available but I would be happy to dedicate that time to Miraheze to help keep the project alive.

Pigeon – Software Engineer (Developer).

While I presume I could be a wee bit in over my head, I do have experience with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, (and Python, Lua, OOP etc.), although unfortunately, to date, not much experience with PHP, although I would be more than willing to put in the time to improve my knowledge and skills. (I am also applying for some community roles if those would be better suited to me until I can gain more experience.) — 🐦Thatgaypigeon (talk) 23:01, 16 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pigeon – Community Engagement Specialist.

Unfortunately, I do not speak any other languages fluently, but languages are one of my strongest passions and I am currently learning various languages at a base level. I studied Spanish (for GCSE) and I can understand some of the basics of French, too. Sometimes I do struggle with communication, being autistic, but I have found that is more in close-friend social interactions rather than more technical, 'professional' environments.
I hope I would be suitable for this role as I would start get to grips with the structure and technical inner-workings of MediaWiki and Miraheze before I can hopefully move to a more technical role if need be. — 🐦Thatgaypigeon (talk) 23:01, 16 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I can do MediaWiki Engineer, Software Engineer, or Community Engagement Specialist
I'm not very experienced, but as I mentioned above I do have qualifications.
Community Engagement Specialist is probably the one I'm most passionate about, since it's the biggest obvious flaw I've seen with Miraheze and wanted to change. Immanuelle (talk) 17:26, 18 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also I'm easier to get to on discord. My username is @kamidere#7777 Immanuelle (talk) 22:51, 18 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am potentially interested in helping out. Miraheze has helped us host for years and although we are going to be leaving I'd like to do what I can to give back to the project. My time is quite limited so I'd need to have a conversation about specifically how much work is expected from me. I am qualified for and interested in Site Reliability Engineers, Security Engineers, MediaWiki Engineer, Software Engineer (Developer). Roughly ordered by my interest.I have an MSc in Computer Science with specific focus in software engineering practice, data visualization, and software security. PHP was my first programming language so I have used it on and off for over a decade. And I have a similar amount of experience with JS. I maintain MediaWiki sites for community projects (not farms though). I also have experience with nginx and proxmox. I currently work as a software engineer.

General Nuisance – Possible Security Reviewer or MediaWiki Engineer .

Hello, I was offered as being of potential relevance to either Security Reviewer or MediaWiki Engineer roles. I have a baseline knowledge of MediaWiki (I am an admin on the UTAU Fandom Wiki where I fixed a fair few bugs, mainly relating to CSS, which I am very comfortable with). UFW is a very small community however, and thus a very different environment from somewhere like Miraheze, which is a full-blown Wikifarm.
I am in a community college program at the moment learning SysAdmin, NetAdmin, WebDev and Help Desk skills, along with basic Cybersecurity. I currently am holding down a full time summer internship as a help desk/IT support analyst role with Canada Revenue Agency and Canada Border Services Agency. I am in the midst of getting my CCNA.
I consider myself fairly comfortable in dealing with people in a support role, as well as with HTML and CSS. I know basic JavaScript and MediaWiki and would be eager to learn more. I would be completely open to learning PHP.
I may also be of use as a Community Engagement specialist due to my experience in a tech support role, and my ability to speak French.
If I am not of much use at the moment, I'd love to apply again in the future, possibly after I am graduated and thus a more fully realized programmer/developer/administrator.

Hi, I would like to apply for the role of site reliability engineer on the infrastructure team. I have nearly two years of experience as a devops engineer, and my current schedule is pretty flexible, which I'd like to commit to this project at this time.

I am working as an SRE currently in Finance domain, I have over 10 years of experience. I would like to expand my technical expertise and soft skills while contributing to live projects. I am able to take out some from my day job. Prak (talk) 05:27, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think anyone is reading this anymore, but the instructions say to post here so. I'm interested in Software Engineer in the MediaWiki team. I'm currently involved in the RequestSSL project, and plan to do some other big developer tasks at phab once that is done, so I think that says something about what I can do with PHP, even if it is not very much. Mostly seeking this role for symbolic reasons, since it doesn't actually grant access to anything. OrangeStar (talk) 19:55, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
